HOUSTON (AP) -Texans running back Ahman Green will miss his third straight game Sunday against Tennessee with a knee injury and Ron Dayne will start in his place.
Green's knee has swelled and bothered him since Week 2, and he has missed five games and played sparingly in the other four since. He practiced more this week than he has in a while, but isn't ready to play.
``It's obvious that when he has extended activity on it, it gives him issues,'' coach Gary Kubiak said. ``Our process these last two days was to push him and see how he responded. He came back this morning and the knee did not swell, he felt good.''
Green signed a four-year, $23 million contract in March. He has 70 carries for 260 yards.
Dayne has 289 yards rushing in the last three games.
